The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) has received notification from the Government of the Republic of Uzbekistan (Uzbekistan) that with effect from January 1, 2020, HKSAR passport holders may visit Uzbekistan visa-free for a stay of up to seven days entering through the international airports with a return air ticket.
An Immigration Department spokesman said, "Uzbekistan is along the Belt and Road. Under the Belt and Road Initiative, this visa-free arrangement would bring greater travel convenience to the travellers of Hong Kong and strengthen the tourism, cultural and economic ties between the two places."
Including Uzbekistan, 167 countries and territories have granted visa-free access or visa-on-arrival to HKSAR passport holders. Please visit the following website for details:
